While I love coming to this and another site for support, and plan to be coming here for a long time to come, I'm starting a local support group for survivors of AVM and aneurysm.
At some point I'll put the group on Meetup.com, but they want at least $12 a month to do it. I don't mind that, but until I actually have a group up and running I'm not sure if I want to do that.
I wanted to announce the group here anyway so anyone who lives in the Albuquerque and surrounding area will know about it.
I think having a local group where people can get together once a month or so could be very beneficial, especially for those who are just starting out on this journey. I know when I first had my bleed and began my own journey I would have been very grateful to have such a group.
If anyone is interested in the group, wants to pass along any suggestions for the group, etc., please email me at:
